Our Numbers

Since 2008, the Office of Academic Community Engagement has been connecting students, faculty, and staff with dozens of local nonprofit agencies through academically grounded and multifaceted community partnerships. ACE connects the college and the Capital Region community through three main initiatives: AmeriCorps VISTA Fellows Program, Bonner Service Leaders Program, and Academic Service Learning and Community-Based Research. ACE involves more than 200 students a year and our financial impact on the Capital Region every year is close to $3 million dollars. ACE volunteers have become lifelines for local nonprofits to survive.
